Jonathan Davis, formerly an architect and urban designer, is a London-based artist who works from his studio in Finsbury Park.

His practice is predominantly two dimensional abstract painting in colour and monochrome using mixed media - metallic mineral gouache, watercolour and acrylic paint, graphite, charcoal on paper and found objects on canvas and boards.

During 2017 Davis developed his work from predominantly aesthetic propositions - in which he explored processes that provide conditions that help control chance outcomes or the development of painterly phenomena - to works that incorporate text fragments and other visual references to questions about contemporary culture and politics. This latest series 'a stranger in my own country' is work in progress that he will continue to develop during 2018.
